Today, after more than 5 months driving around South America our adventure has come to an end, and we would really like to thank all the people that we have encountered on the road, who received us with open arms, gave us advice, taught us about their cultures and shared beautiful moments with us. You […]

La Supervanita has arrived in Cartagena! We have covered 25,065kms since Uruguay in November. Amazingly this huge distance, on some terrible roads and worse drivers has been completed without so much as a puncture, let alone a mechanical problem. Toyota forever! Having spent a few days in Medellin with Juan’s family we continued north to the […]

The huge valley is full of outstanding landscapes and Inca ruins like the ones in the pretty village of Ollantaytambo, where the Inca trail starts ( km. 82 ) and where we stopped for a night. The second part of the […]

Yes! The van managed to get through the 4700 m pass, although it was a long journey in first gear! We were worried about altitude sickness, but we both handled it quite well thanks to Coca leaves ( you have to chew or drink like a tea)  used by Bolivians and Peruvians in the Andes […]
